Vic and Blood: Stories Reviews
The first time I read "A boy and his dog" I was twelve or thirteen. I remember how I thought Blood was the coolest dog ever, but for some reason I pictured him as a German Shepherd all these years. I never got to read the other stories in the series back then, but that story stuck with me for 40 odd years so I decided to read it again when it popped up in a conversation of end of the world scenarios.
If you want a writer who pushes boundries, explores human nature without censorship and is truly an artist when it comes to fiction then HE is your guy. You may not like this novel or novella but you will love it. His writing may seem simple in this work but it is incredibly effective. This is a must read along with Kurt Voneghuts Sirens of Titan.
The story is such a great analogy of the human condition and how we meet destiny to do that which we would rather not.
What a joy to finally read this book. I've been a fan of the movie since middle school, but i always buy books from local mom and pop shops, too which they never had this particular work. Finally i gave in, and boy am i glad i did. The very Ellison intro gets you in the mood for what feels like only a 3-5 hour read. I only wish it was longer.
This was my first introduction to Harlan Ellison. Reading it was a dichotomy between a dark, shocking post-apocalyptic plotline that I wanted to put down yet it is writing at it’s finest. The book is effective and gripping but not for everyone.
My first introduction to Ellison and I simply fell in love. I can't wait to read more by him!
Great work, I have always been a fan
in post apocalyptic america. blood and his human vic roam as solos in the ultimate bond between canine and human, survival. pretty okay yarn.
